Winslow Crocker House

A showcase of early Americana

Save to my Account

This Georgian Winslow Crocker House, known for its elaborate paneling, stood out for its fancy design, set as it was amidst humble farmsteads and fishermen’s cottages. The Yarmouth Port gem was built around 1780 by a wealthy trader and land speculator.

In 1936, Mary Thatcher moved the Crocker house down Old King’s Highway, next door to her ancestral home. She used the structure as a life-sized dollhouse of sorts, remodeling it to suit her extensive collection of antique furniture, hooked rugs, and pewter, and then donated it and her collections to Historic New England.
